Newcastle, Pudding Chare, Medieval vessel and well
In 1892 during excavations in Pudding Chare, a medieval green glazed earthenware ewer-shaped vessel with a handle (13.5 inches high, 4.75 inches in diameter at mouth and 6.75 inches at the base) was found. It was embedded in 10 feetof solid clay on the north-east side of Pudding Chare, surrounded by oak stakes 6 inches apart, which appear to have been there to protect it. It was said to be a vessel of Norman or transitional period. The remains of a brick lined well were found in the same vicinity. Matthew Mackey Jr donated the vessel to the Society of Antiquaries in 1892.
